Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) warned her followers on Twitter Tuesday morning to get ready for President Donald Trump's impeachment.

Waters has not made it clear why she is warning Trump he will be impeached, but she has frequently accused Trump of having a "Kremlin clan," and believes he colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

Waters kept her Tuesday tweet to four words: "Get ready for impeachment."

The tweet comes one day after FBI Director James Comey's testimony at the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia's influence on the 2016 election. On Monday, Comey revealed the FBI was looking into any possible contacts between Trump's campaign and anyone involved in Russia's influence on the campaign.

Waters took to Twitter after Comey's testimony to declare why she does not believe he is credible, and that he also interfered in the election.

In a two paragraph statement on the House Intelligence Committee hearing she posted to Twitter, Waters wrote that Comey "bears some responsibility, along with the Russians, in adding to the confusion and misinformation campaign that led to the election of Donald Trump."

Waters also wrote that "it is clear" she could not trust House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.) because he is a Republican.

Waters' tweets are in line with her past statements insisting that Trump will be impeached.
